PEZ Star Wars Collectible Gift Tin - Guitar

Postby CarveOne » Fri Dec 15, 2017 11:54 pm

I have a great-nephew named Levi that is an 8 year old Star Wars movie fan. I can't wait to see how he reacts to this guitar. I doubt that he will learn to play it, but it will make a great bedroom wall hanger. It took some engineering to get it to work at all, much less sound pretty good. It's a long way from sounding like a vintage acoustic guitar made by the pros, but it is typical of the tin box style guitars (similar to the popular cigar box guitars). Internet searches have not turned up another guitar made with this particular breath mint box. Levi will have a very unique Star Wars themed Christmas gift this year - courtesy of his uncle Richard. :D

The neck has one of the new 2017 P collectible pennies inlaid in it. His "lucky penny". It is tuned to GBE, same as an acoustic guitar's smaller three strings. The tailpiece is cocobolo and the nut/bridge are Corian scraps. 23" scale length. Fret markers are decorative metal beads. A piezo electric pickup with output jack and level control are included. The neck is designed in Aspire, of course.

That's really cool. He will love it I'm sure. I made 2 cigar box guitars for my boys last year, and they loved them. Happy Holidays.

Thanks guys.

I delivered it on Wednesday, the only day this week that I could make the trip. His dad let him open it while I was there and Levi was really ecstatic about the gift. :D

His dad downloaded the smartphone app that I use to tune my guitar projects and I showed him how easy it is to re-tune it when needed.
